The first volume of the first Ordo of the Amsterdam edition of the Latin texts of Erasmus contains a general introduction, and presents Erasmus’ attack on barbarous Latin, a commentary on Ovidius’ poem Nux, as well as Erasmus’ Latin translations of Euripides’ Hecuba and Iphigenia, declamations of Libanius, and works by Lucianus and Galenus. The volume offers a critical edition of the Latin text with introductions, and a commentary in English offering background information that helps to understand the text, and an evaluation of Erasmus’ translations.
